Mexican Connection, Saratoga Springs

Mexican Connection Saratoga Springs

Mexican Connection claims it was the first to bring Mexican food to the Capital Region, in 1979. Whether or not this is true, I can’t say. But I can say that I had a pleasant dinner there. Kiyo and I ventured there one night to try something different; it’s not on the main “strip” of Saratoga, Broadway, so it peaked our interest. If you’re a visitor to the area, you definitely need to drive or take a taxi if you’re going at night, it would simply be too confusing to find, even if you were up for the mile-plus walk. They have ample parking (since it’s nestled amongst houses), which is refreshing after trying to park at other, more frequented restaurants on crowded Broadway.


I believe I had a pulled chicken or pork burrito and Kiyo had his favorite, enchiladas. I remember loving the sauce generously heaped onto my plate; it was some iteration of sour cream. While their food isn’t incredible or avant-garde, it was very good. It’s a place I haven’t been to in a few years but would definitely revisit for a fun, unpretentious night out.
